welcome back to the morning news. they are just ringing that opening bell in new york this morning. that is credit core out of peru. looks like a pretty good day. very good night overnight in asia. and this morning in europe a couple of things contributing to that which we will talk about in a little bit. if you look at the lower part of your screen, you can see the dow jones up 27 points.
6:31 am
we'll keep watching. >> we sure will. we'll say good morning to you. thank you for joining us. it is monday ct 25th i'm dave clark been >> i'm pam cook. things are happening this morning. a new phase started in the bay bridge eastern span. there are concerns that work could distract some of you drivers out there. claudine wong is there. she's live from treasure island. she has a birds eye view and has the details. good morning. >> reporter: yes work is under way here at the bay bridge and in the next hour or so and throughout the day the next couple ophidias we expect it to effect traffic. you're taking a look from treasure island at the bay bridge. traffic is already moving steadily this morning. there is a backup at the toll plaza. obviously anything that effects traffic is catching everyone's attention. if you take a look to the left where we are standing you can see the construction site that is all it will up. you see the big tower that is
6:32 am
in place. that's kind of where we're focused this morning. that that is where things will get busy. drivers this morning will get a front row seat. i will show you video we shot an hour and a half ago. the barge we are looking at is critical. there are five sections to the self-anchored spans single 525- foot tall tower. the first of the sections went into place in july. the second set goes in this morning and over the next few days. that second set consists of four sections. the barge this morning took over the first of the sections. 107 feet tall. 617 pounds or 1.2 million pounds. it does take to lift bolts. >> these sections are being listed over 300 feet -- these sections are being lifted 300 feet in the air. and translated -- it means they move in position, lift them 300
6:33 am
feet in the air. translates it to where it needs to be and set down. the team goes on the inside and bolts it together. we continue that process for all four leg sections. >> back live out here on treasure island. you can see the construction area is well it will. if you cross the bridge you will not see much more than that. the problem is over the next hour or so when they start tilting that section up it is going to be right at the eye level of drivers. curiosity can be dangerous if you're behind the wheel and driving across this bridge. it can cause back ups. caltran is askingdrivers to be aware this will be happening and keep your eyes on the road even though you want to take look at the activity going on. when will this start effecting traffic? they told us last week that it would be around 7:00 thousands morning. over the next half hour. a couple of hours or so we'll have to monitor things to see

6:35 am
average police officer which costs an average of $180,000 a year. that would be five more police officers. we have to make that choice. >> if our special operations officers needed to come to the police department first to pick up their vehicles you can see where the response time would be increase the in essence creating a bigger problem. >> the city audit identified 90 police vehicles that should not be taken home. other criticismed raised some of the police and fire vehicles taken home go as far away as medesto. a new report shows while san francisco schools struggle with a dwindling budget. the city school board has increased the budgets for the past four years. the chronicle reports the board spent more than $492,000 last year including $22,000 for catered meals and $7300 for conference in portland. the report concludes that it's not aa lot of money given the
6:36 am
districts $500 million annual budget but it is in contrast to the ongoing cost cutting at the school. a highly contested ballot measure in san jose has lead to accusations between law officers and firefighters that city council men are stealing their campaign sign. this is video posted on you tube. it shows an encounter on saturday after city counselman pierluigi moving signs. he supports measure v which would limit police and firefighter pay. he says he removed the signs because they were illegally posted in public areas. >> every resident underth municipal code can take down these signs and should. >> council member was found in possession of only four signs yesterday. hundreds of signs have gone missing in the last few weeks.

remember 40 minutes ago i showed you that we were able to buy tickets from the giants from their website club level outfield seats for $210 a piece. i checked it again can't get back on there. checked game two can't get on there. $210 was the price. the frenzy of the seats set off by this. >> ryan howard he went. 3-2 pitch. got him looking and the giants win the pennant. >> reporter: a called third strike on ryan howard. that curveball froze him up there. with the running run on first base that ended the phillys season to set the giants. the world series. it also sent these two guys to the ticket window. you're not going to deny your children their college tuition over this. >> no. no. it's kind of absurd how much
6:46 am
people ask for standing room. hopefully we can look out and get face value tickets and get the family here. >> we're hoping there is other san francisco januaries. the economy is tough. we have families and so forth. we are hoping to -- we are looking for donations for the giants family fund. >> yeah. >> reporter: this is what i'm talking about 40 minutes ago we went on the giants website and had an opportunity to buy four seats in the outfield club level for $210 a piece. that opportunity was gone at least for now. if you can't buy them on the giants website of course there their ticket brokers from which you can buy tickets. the sub hub has them for mid $400 range. i think it's $442 for standing room only. the giants website up to $5,000 for pretty good seats. near behind home plate. if you can't buy them for stub hub you can go to other
6:47 am
websites out there. vivid tickets. great tickets to name a couple of them and buy tickets from them as well. i've gone to some ticket brokers that are base in other cities like for instance i went to one that was based in chicago. i didn't find the 442s but i did find seats from $10 to $5,000 range. and of course they have the ticket brokers that don't have the offices they sell them around third street here. a lot of guys have been out here for a lot of time. it's not legal but i'm sure people will be exploring that option. >> thank you, craig. excited giants fans are sending us photos documenting san francisco's first world series appearance since 2002. take a look. karen sent us this picture. what a cutie. you are never too young to put on the orange and black and root for the giants. here's a shot at a furry four legged fan also wearing a
